We booked Canyoning and Canoeing with Dionisio Cardoso (www.experienceazores.com
https://www.facebook.com/experienceazores) and could not have been happier with our experiences. We were two parents and children aged 8, 10, 12 and 17. Having had a truely awful experince with the swimming with Dolphins people in Ponte Delgada (see my review), my partner was anxious and the teenager saying she did not want to go. However, it turned out that with Dionisio and his brother Andre we had the best day our our entire holiday. The canyoning was everything a family could have wanted - wet (they gave us lovely warm wetsuits), fun, exciting, adventurous and beautiful. We had asked for adventure and fun with out fear and that is exactlay what we got. They have other routes for the risk takers and fealess, but that was not us. wse spalshed and laughed for hours and both brothers did everytrhing possible to ensure we had a good time. We were the only ones booked and that was nice too. Dionisio had explained beforehand that 6 of us would make a good number for one group. We planned to canoe a couple of days later and Dionisio again picked us up but when we got to Sete Cidades the weather closed in and we decided not to go as we could not admire the wonderful setting with nill visability. Instead we went to Dionisio's family retreat on the lake and then to visit a volcanic cave near Ponto Delgada that I can recommened. This was exciting and interesting for the children and the guide (a friend of Dionisio's) was so interested in 'his' tunnels that his enthusiasm embraced us all. So back to canoeing on another day and this time with a work collugue, also called Andre, who as super. We had 3 canoes and Andre went with our 10 year old which made her day (even her year) as they could tear around the lakes faster than any of us. As before, we had a delightful time and throroughly enjoyed our experience. eXperience Azores offer a number of activites and based on the guys involved, I would recommened anyone of them. You are guarenteed to have fun.
